DETROIT (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is guaranteeing the U.S. will stand with Israel, saying America's bond with Israel is "unbreakable." Biden spoke at a fundraiser Sunday night for a Jewish Orthodox day school near Detroit. The vice president says Israel is a key element to the U.S.'s own security and its broader efforts in the Middle East. Biden said President Barack Obama feels the same way.
Hundreds of people attended the dinner at a downtown hotel for the Yeshiva Beth Yehudah. About 800 children and teens attend the school, which offers preschool through 12th grade. Republicans have tried to attract Jewish support following Obama's suggestion that the future borders of a Palestinian state and a Jewish state be drawn on the basis of Israel's pre-1967 war frontiers.
